Painting The Enlightened Mind
International artist Andy Weber is visiting the Coast to conduct his much-anticipated annual art retreat at Chenrezig Institute, Eudlo, the Coast’s thriving Buddhist community nestled in the foothills of the Blackall Range. Learn directly from this highly renowned master in Tibetan Art, while relaxing in a spectacular setting, surrounded by rainforest, bird-life and cooling breezes.
Andy spent seven years studying the iconographical art of Tibetan Buddhism under the guidance of accomplished masters in India and Nepal. With over 35 years of experience under his belt, Andy now leads courses around the world teaching ancient, authentic Tibetan Buddhist art techniques – processes which have been passed on from master to master through the ages.
His Thangka paintings (Tibetan scroll paintings) can be seen in Buddhist centres and temples throughout the world, including the famous Potala Palace in Lhasa. His powerful images are highly respected not only by the growing number of Western Buddhists, but also by Tibetan Lamas of all traditions, many of whom have commissioned his work.
Producing images of deities is viewed by Buddhists as a powerful form of meditation in itself. During the retreat, students will be guided to produce an image of the deity Vajrasattva, the Buddha of Purification.
This retreat is a rare opportunity for students to come into contact with a real Tibetan Buddhist art master, to develop their knowledge and skills of Tibetan symbolism, and to further deepen their meditation practice through the process of painting.
